1. An electrical system configured to control power delivery from a power supply to one or more alternate current circuits including a first alternate current circuit, the electrical system being packaged in an enclosure configured to be mounted in a circuit breaker panel, the electrical system comprising:

  • a sensor configured to generate a sensor output signal conveying information related to power delivered from the power supply to the first alternate current circuit; and

    a processor configured to execute computer program modules, the computer program modules comprising;

    an interface module configured to convey power information to a user, wherein the power information is related to power delivered from the power supply to the first alternate current circuit;

    an analysis module configured to;

    analyze power usage of the one or more alternate current circuits to determine power usage patterns of the one or more alternate current circuits, andcreate new rules and/or adapt existing rules based on the determined power usage patterns of the one or more alternate current circuits, wherein a first rule is created and/or adapted based on a power usage pattern of the first alternate current circuit;

    a trigger module configured to identify trigger events, wherein the trigger events comprise a first trigger event identified based on application of the first rule; and

    a control module configured to control an amount of power provided from the power supply to the first alternate current circuit based on the trigger events identified by the trigger module, wherein the amount of power provided from the power supply to the first alternate current circuit is controlled based on the first trigger event identified by the trigger module.
